Chilling in Creel, Mexico – time to go through the pictures!

Chilling in Creel, Mexico for about a month, so I thought I’d go through my pictures and get them out on the internet.

Ones I like, not really pertaining to anything in particular.

government spying

I see this and I think about all the government spying that’s being done these days. Pathetic stuff from the u.s.a.

The Georgia Aquarium at night. Just thought it looked cool!

A racetrack in the middle of no where – why it’s there, who uses it? One of the many questions that go unanswered in my life.

Drive out from Batopilas, Mexico. Copper Canyon

The drive out of Batopilas, Mexico. Can’t remember that last time I was this scared!

Road out of Batopilas, Mexico Copper Canyon

The “good” road out of Batopilas, Mexico. It was either this road, or 7 hours on a dirt road going through the mountains and streams

Drive out of Batopilas, Mexico. Copper Canyon

The switchback’s on the ‘good” road total in the 30’s I believe. Nothing holding the mountain in place.

Batopilas, Mexico road out. Copper Canyon

Until the bulldozer gets done, there is no road going out.

The scenery is great, but the road ain’t worth a hoot coming out of Batopilas, Mexico

Ford Explorer Sport, 4×4 – this is what i’m driving. Got stuck on a rock on the mountainside, and thought it was the end

Landslade on Batopilas road out, Mexico Copper Canyon

The concern was will the rains hold off until I get out. (I’ll give you a hint – luck was not with me that day!)

Batopilas, Mexico road out. Copper Canyon

So close, but still had to wait 2 hours for the bulldozer to get done, and make a road for me!

Batopilas, Mexico road out. Copper Canyon

Nope, the rains held off for awhile – but just when it got really tough, it started to pour!

Finally starting to make the “road” for me to get out of the valley.

Didn’t see the support for the road being eroded away until I got passed it. Want to know what I was thinking? Had something to do with “Holy Sh**”

Batopilas, Mexico road out Copper Canyon

See this cables in the road? They help support the bridge. “Holy …. ” thoughts popped into my head once again!

I hadn’t even gotten to the bad part of the road, yet. Boy , was I in for a surprise!

It had’t even started to raid yet. this is one stream we crossed. When it started raining, many streams appeared!

Batopilas, Mexico road out. Copper Canyon

No road yet to leave by. Batopilas, Mexico is SHUT DOWN!

I though I was going to join these two!

Beautiful country, but lousy road!

Batopilas, Mexico road out. Copper Canyon

HE’s worked on the mountain side for 4 days! Still has work to do, and still not road out!

The river that’s helped make this valley and the afternoon rains have started!

Batopilas, Mexico road out. Copper Canyon

This is the “road in the making” that’s going to get me out of the valley. “Holy …” thoughts popping into my head for a looooong time!

Batopilas, Mexico road out. Copper Canyon

My first thought on seeing this was “No fricken way” Guy told me, “This IS the fricken way!”

Batopilas, Mexico road out. Copper Canyon

The bulldoze lead. He moved the rocks and mud coming down the side of the mountain. I followed the flatbed. The flatbed missed going into the river by about 4 feet. He stopped as a mudslide moved down over the “makeshift” road. Scared to death, I was!
